BENEFITS OF INTERNAL LINKING FOR SEO
1. Anchor Text & Context
Anchor Text is the visible & clickable text in a hyperlink. That means a text with a link called anchor text.
When you add a link to an appropriate word in a post, users can go through the link to see your other post & understand about the word. That’s very important to show the meaning of the word & also another post about this.
There are several benefits,
- Catch users on your site.
- Push them to another post.
- Show officiality of your site.
By the strategy, you can push your audience to another post by anchor text.
Here I mention the relationship between pages in the same domain. As we contact our relatives for the relationship, here you have to build a link to build the relation between pages.
Build link more and more in your site to connect pages that users can go through these. That will be very useful to engage with the audience and get more and more views on the site to make SEO friendly by internal linking.
3. Improve Page Rank
Page rank is the main target of every site. Nowadays everyone is fighting each other to rank pages in the search engine through the keyword. Google always find backlinks on your site to improve ranking.
Internal links can easily contribute to a higher page rank of a site. As I have said about backlinks in above para, the internal link also the backlinks which are linked to the same domain to connect content to build the relationship.
As much as you can, always build an internal link to make proper anchor text. It will always help to get rank higher fastly because Google sees those links as recommendations.
4. Decrease Bounce Rate
Bounce Rate is basically calculated on how much time a visitor spends on your site. Here high bounce rate is bad and low bounce rate is very good. When you make many proper internal links then it may be catch visitor to push them on the other page.
Then you can earn more time from one audience by the linking. That’s much better than an external link.
5. Improves the Indexing of the Site
A site with many good internal linking, its new content will be discovered and indexed quickly by the search engine as the recommendation. The search engine like Google has many algorithms such as home pages and also other pages must have many backlinks.
You should build fewer authority pages with higher authority pages. Then minor pages will be indexed by search engine quickly.
6. User Experience
The user is the main object of every site. A site with no audience then no value. Check the result of a site with zero internal links,
- Can’t indexed by the search engine.
- Don’t get views.
- Can’t catch audience on the site.
- Doesn’t improve page rank.
Here internal links catch users to stay on the site by pushing them to other pages.
7. Improve Old Posts
You can easily get views from old posts by linking them to a new post in the proper section. Add old post’s link in the new blog post at the proper section then the reader will go to the pages to show the content of the word.
If you have a money making blog then the internal link is the main tool to earn more money quickly. That’s a simple process here,
- Link old post to the new post.
- Catch views on the new post and push the audience to the old post through anchor text.
- Get views on the old post & earn money.
